Art Portal Scout Reset and Meatboy Oct. 5th, 2009 @ 03:35 PM Reply

On Tuesday, October 6th at 2pm, we will be resetting the Art Portal scouting tree.

All of your art will remain, but you will no longer be scouted. We are starting from scratch with a new foundation, and scout invites now require your confirmation.

This means you may get scout invites via PM from multiple people, and you can CHOOSE who you want to be your scout, rather than have no control over who scouts you.

We're keeping a back-up of the old tree but expect that within a week, the Art Portal will be close to normal and better than ever.

If you don't wish to be scouted, don't check the box to showcase your art in the Art Portal. It will remain solely on your page and the option to be scouted will not be available.

New in the store: Exclusive autographed Super Meat Boy comic by Edmund McMillen!

This comic was made as a press promo, but we have 50 autographed copies available for just $5 each.

Check out the Super Meat Boy intro:

In related news, Edmund had an unexpected hospital visit this week and lacks insurance or a public option, so he has to pay out of pocket.

If you've enjoyed Edmund's games, please make a donation to help him out.

If you can't donate, tell your Facebook, Twitter or real-world friends about his games so he can make more ad money:

Cool news, I hope that Edmund gets better soon!

The "new" scouting system sounds interesting, I guess that now people will stop complaining about getting unscouted because the person who scouted them got unscouted too.

sounds like a really good idea to let the artists choose whom they wish to be scouted from! fingers crossed that the change happens smoothly :)

That "music" contest was actually a writing contest themed off the NG-Audio Portal. :P

In case anyone sees that and says "what?"

Wait I don't really get it. Is it going to have a redesign or is it just the scouting system that's gonna be modified?

Well it sure sounds pretty interesting, though.

Question: can we submit photographs as long as we don't check "This is not a sketch, please include it in the Art Portal."?

Good call. A lot of people are complaining about the scouting system, and I thinks it's good to start fresh!

I'm so happy.

The work, which becomes a new genre itself, will be called...
